Web 2.0 Growth – Microsoft and Yahoo merger talks

Not a very profound quote I’ll accept, but I saw a quote attributed to yours truly in an article in Internet Week about the merger talks between Microsoft and Yahoo. I don’t even remember talking to the author of the article, but I’m attributed as saying: "The new technology out there is allowing people to connect far more easily and the best way to do this is through social media tools". Well hopefully not many people will argue with that, but  what I would have preferred to have been quoted on is that regardless of what Yahoo and Microsoft decide to do in terms of the business-to-consumer interface, its the content that really counts, and I think that Yahoo have a clear edge over Microsoft in this respect. So, apologies to any readers for my actual printed quote – which is quite inane really!
